SDCT Open Meeting: The work of William Morris in Southgate

Christ Church, The Green, Southgate, N14 7EG  

201903 sdct open meeting

This Open Meeting will be a bit different, as we will have two excellent speakers and a whole afternoon devoted to William Morris, the English Arts and Crafts designer and early socialist. Our speakers are: Fr Chrichton Limbert, Vicar, Christ Church Southgate and Ainsley Vinall, Assistant Curator, William Morris Gallery.

There is a strong local connection with William Morris, so our afternoon will include a tour by Chrichton of the Grade II* listed Christ Church, including the impressive Pre-Raphaelite stained glass windows. These stained glass windows were produced by William Morris’ company and incorporate designs by William Morris, Burne Jones and Rossetti. In case you did not know, the image of St. Matthew is reputed to be a self-portrait of Morris.

Ainsley will talk about William Morris himself and the stained glass produced by Morris & Co. He will also tell us about the history behind the William Morris Gallery, which was opened in 1950 by Prime Minister Clement Attlee. The gallery is located in Walthamstow at Morris' family home from 1848 to 1856, itself a substantial Grade II* listed Georgian dwelling.

The gallery was reopened in 2012 after a major redevelopment, and is an award winning museum. We intend to arrange a tour at a later date to see the impressive collection.

Everyone is welcome: entry is free for members, and only £2 for non-members.

Time & venue: Please note different venue and start time!
